View and edit a request for quotation

The dashboard (start page of FUTURA Smart) is where you can find the latest requests for quotation. The status indicates the processing status. The "New" status means that this transaction has not yet been viewed. If the request for quotation you are looking for is not showing on the dashboard, you can use the menu area on the left to display the complete lists. To do so, click for example on "Ongoing" under "Requests for quotation".

Current requests on the dashboard

All available requests for quotation with this status will then be displayed on the rigth side:
